To support the launch of the new online chat counselling service, (ISC) will update its Hope for Wellness Help Line web content on Canada.ca to include direct links to the online chat counselling service.

The Hope for Wellness Help Line offers immediate mental health counselling and crisis intervention to all Indigenous people across Canada.
Experienced and culturally competent counsellors can help by working with you or help you to find other wellness supports available near you.
Counselling by phone and chat is available in English and French. Phone counselling is also available in Cree, Ojibway and Inuktitut, on request.
Please help build awareness for this new service by sharing this information.
